'All public logs' shouldn't show the 'page creation log' by default
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently "All public logs" show the "page creation log" along with other logged actions, but there is an option to show additional logs (patrol log, tag log). Page creation is not an administrative action, so it shouldn't be shown by default, and be selected optionally in "Show additional logs".

@Vlad5250: Could you answer my question please?

@Aklapper: I'm not a developer but I know how to resolve this task.

I disagree here. While page creation may appear floody when viewing the log as a whole, this is not the typical use case. If you view at a log, you usually either want to see log entries of specific type and action, by a specific user or about a specific case. In the first case this question is irrelevant, in the second case it might have some merit, but in the third case it imho makes the log much less clear, as you do not see a short summary of the page history (creations, deletions, moves and administrative actions), but only a less comprehensive part of that by default.
